Market Day 3 Thursday

What was amazing about this day?  SAMPLE SPREE is tonight!!  Before that though, there were some last minute touches on the booth as well as last minute touches on all the Moda designers before their big school house gig.  Moda had a theme, Country Fair.  Each designer created a recipe card that had a recipe for a block that you might find at the Country Fair and a real, food recipe.  They were all given tee shirts and aprons.  Some of the shirts were a little BIGand required a makeover

All the Moda designers got together for a photo before going into the school house to present their block.

Here is what the quilt looked like with each designer's block.

When Edtya saw the quilt, with her fabrics, she almost cried, she is such a doll!

She was also the funniest one. She had made a bag with her project and told how her husband would see her going out with a small bag and hand over the credit card thinking that she could not fit much or charge much if that was her bag. Then she turned it out and it became a GIANT bag!! It was very funny. She also made a quilt using her block and her discarded blocks (for the recipe).

When all that fun was over we went back and did some more with the booth and walked around a little bit. Then we went for a bite to eat with the Anne's to Olive Garden. Pauline and I hustled back to get in line for sample spree. They sole 1200 tickets and it was first come first served. Since Anne was going to be in there she had a map of which vendors were where so I made a little cheat sheet while we were at dinner and while P and I were sitting on the floor we made a plan.

Just look at the line!!
